ONE: Pride Of Lions Will Feature Ben Askren

Ben ASkren

Back in April, Ben Askren did not have his hand raised as the winner for the first time in 15 professional MMA fights.

Askren, the reigning ONE welterweight champion, will have the opportunity to avenge that no-contest with Luis Santos when the two collide in November at ONE: Pride of Lions.

Set for November 13 from the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore, the two will meet in the main event.

Askren (14-0) signed with the Asian promotion after his contract with Bellator expired in 2013 and as the welterweight champion. He has fought three times in all with ONE, finishing Bakhtiya Abbasov and Nobutatsu Suzuki.

Santos (61-9-1) is one of the most experienced fighters in all of MMA, having turned pro in 2000. He has fought the likes of Ildemar Alcantara, Adriano Martins, Ben Saunders and Ryan Ford.

The first Askren-Santos match was stopped in the first round after an eye poke rendered the Brazilian unable to continue.
